This is a place where fishes are said to meet in Aboriginal. The resort was originally built in World War II as a naval base and years later in 1952 it became a whaling station. This station was later closed in 1962 after there was the scarcity of the whales. The lease of the station was later purchased by group businessmen from Gold Coast and reopened it in 1963 as a tourist resort center.

There are many facilities in this resort ranging right from cafes, swimming pools, restaurants, and bars.

At your stay here, you will involve yourself in different activities, these include wild dolphin feeding, whale watching, different games, and safaris, and you will find everything here. There are actually over eighty different activities at the resort and half of them are free.
